Drake’s ‘Views’ Earns Sixth Week Atop Billboard 200

The 6 God goes six for six.

That’s right. Drake’s Views has now earned its sixth week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, selling 135,000 equivalent album units.

This marks the most consecutive weeks atop the chart for an album by a man in more than a decade. 50 Cent nabbed six weeks at No. 1 in 2005 with The Massacre and Eminem reached seven non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 with The Eminem Show in 2010.

Diving further into the numbers, Views’ 135,000 equivalent album units were made up of 81,000 in streaming equivalent album units, 32,000 in traditional album sales, and 22,000 in track equivalent album units. Views also has the sixth largest streaming weeks for an album’s tracks.

Elsewhere on the Billboard 200, Beyoncé’s LEMONADE moves up to No. 2 with 69,000 units (48,000 in traditional album sales). Rihanna’s ANTI stays in the top 10 at No. 6 with 40,000 units, while Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman is right behind her at No. 7 with 33,000 units.
